Easygov: consultancy and solutions
EasyGov Solutions is a start-up of Politecnico di Milano offering research and consulting projects in the public management field.
EasyGov was born in 2006 from the initiative and experience of a team of researchers working in the Department of Industrial and Management Engineering (DIG), at Politecnico di Milano. Our engineers combine an in-depth knowledge of the public sector with robust analytical abilities. EasyGov supports Public Administrations in the process of planning and implementing change: this builds on an intelligent mix of research and consultancy, helping public stakeholders to make strategic decisions and set priorities.

EasyGov acknowledges the fundamental role of research. Research is the primary source from which to draw good practices capable of improving service delivery, challenging Public Administration’s eventual gap in service provision, ultimately guaranteeing a better use of public resources (and therefore of taxpayers’ money).
This is why in 2010, building on more than ten years of research experience in the public management field, EasyGov’s Engineers and the School of Management of Politecnico di Milano gave birth to the eGovernment Observatory, with the aim to:
- Support innovation in the public sector by identifying and fostering the dissemination and re-use of good organisational, managerial and technological solutions.
- Starting from this sample, analysis of good practices in terms of service planning and delivery
- Analysis of the extent to which these good practices can be improved and adopted by a broad range of Public Administrations
- Analysis of the consequent possible impacts on public service users
- Field research: online survey addressed to public managers, aiming at understanding operational paradigms; CATI addressed to citizens, aiming to understand the user experience; direct interview aiming at identifying relevant case studies
- Collection, check, comment and reporting of research data
Organisation of workshops (closed meetings) and of a final conference (public debate), where research results are discussed in front of a relevant audience of private and public players operating in public service delivery.
